Ready in about 20 minutes this tagliatelle is perfect when you’re busy and hungry but still want something fuss free, tasty and satisfying!
And with its rich, creamy, flavour filled sauce I promise this vegan tagliatelle will be a hit with the whole family, even the non-vegan members!
There’s not a tonne of ingredients either. Just some store cupboard essentials and the magical thing that is black garlic.
It’s something I used to use a long time ago and sort of forgot about it (thank you getting older). It’s got the most wonderful depth of flavour and a very unique smell – much richer and less pungent than raw, fresh garlic. Honestly, just peeling the bulbs from their papery skin has me salivating!
Personally I prefer a richer, thicker sauce, to really coat the tagliatelle with a bit of sauce left in the bowl to be mopped up by some crusty bread.
How to make this simple tagliatelle recipe:
The pasta sauce is made in just one pot. And if you use fresh pasta instead of dried you can even cook the tagliatelle in the sauce. I like to use a large sauce pan to make the sauce in – for no particular reason other than I find it easier to turn the pasta through the sauce. But use whatever pot you have.
Start by heating the oil with the vegan butter in your pan. I’ve added butter (just a dot) and used the oil from the jar of sun dried tomatoes for flavour.
Sauté the garlic and sun dried tomatoes in the pan for just a minute. This helps release all those wonderful aromatic flavours.
Add the white wine and bubble for couple of minutes to cook off the raw alcohol flavour. Then add the cream, paprika and rosemary and bubble for a further minute.
Stir in the mozzarella, parmesan, nutritional yeast and bouillon. Then taste and add salt and pepper as needed.
Cook the pasta according to packet instructions. Use plenty of boiling, salted water. Once cooked you want the pasta to be al dente which means firm to the bite.
Before you drain the pasta scoop out a cupful of water. Pasta cooking water is full of starch and this is what gives the sauce that lovely silky finish.
Drain the tagliatelle. Add to the sauce, along with enough of the pasta water to make a thick, velvety sauce.
Spoon into serving bowls. Then top with a sprinkling of grated vegan parmesan.
And finally get your forks ready to twirl all that lovely pasta through the rich, creamy sauce!
